Helping disadvantaged students to improve their English skills.
Our main beneficiaries are children and youth, whose education has been negatively impacted by rural-urban migration in China. Some of these young people have moved with their parents to cities where they do not have access to regular public schools due to residence issues, and are enrolled in schools for the children of migrant workers, whose educational standards fall behind the urban public schools. Others are enrolled in public schools, but need extra help with their schoolwork, which their parents are often unable to provide.
Other migrant workers’ children are unable to go with their parents to the cities, and are left behind in rural boarding schools or living with other family members. The educational standards in rural schools lag significantly behind urban schools, and in addition to the disadvantages faced by rural children, these “left-behind” children also lack parental support.
In addition, we assist organisations who are serving the children of low-income households in the cities, and children with special educational needs. Most of our students are primary-school age, but we also have kindergarten, middle school, high school, and vocational school students.
We support registered organisations in China who provide educational support, enrichment activities and vocational training to these beneficiaries, in particular in the areas of English and digital literacy, but also in other subjects which tend to be neglected in disadvantaged communities.
